NSW Ride 2020

Help me support children in need

I agreed to visit Sydney on business and ended up committing to ride 1000 kilometers across and 15 kilometers up in 7 days from Hobart to Launceston in March to raise funds for kids in need.

Funds raised from this event will support our major charity partner Starlight Children's Foundation.

Starlight Children’s Foundation has been a Chain Reaction supported charity since the ride’s foundation in 2007. Funds from Chain Reaction Challenge help SCF to operate the Starlight Express Room 7 days a week at the Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick. The Starlight Express Room is the place where kids can forget about being sick in hospital and just be kids. No doctors. No treatments. Just play.

Fundraising is always a balance of doing something difficult as well as not over-leveraging your friends and family for cash too often. However, the cause is such a great one (and one we can all relate to) in supporting sick children, many of whom have life-limiting or more severe illnesses. So, this one is for John who I never got to meet, for Robert who I watched grow, and for Alex who I still see every day wherever I go.


Thank You To My Donors

Glad you're doing this for a good cause - looks a little harder than last year, hope you've been staying away from pies.
